TUFF finalists announced
The finalists for the fourth annual Toronto Urban Film Festival were announced today at a conference at The Drake Hotel.
Over 350 silent, urban-themed one-minute films were submitted, and some of the best will be showcased on TTC platforms from September 10 - 19.
Some of the frontrunners are:
Ride The Rocket, by CODY CAMPANALE & PAUL WILSON (Toronto, Canada) -- A futuristic ride on the TTC brings a whole new meaning to 'ride the rocket'.
Casablanca 1 PM, by OCTAVIAN FEDOROVICI (Arad, Romania) -- Midday, Casablanca, Morocco: the streets swirl into mosaics, and the eagerness to grasp life becomes playful ritual.
Paper Games, by STEVEN SHANAHAN (Toronto, Canada) -- Bored, and without technological distraction on the subway, a resourceful guy with a pad of paper brings his own game to life.
Daily Violence, by PAYAL KAPADIA (Mumbai, India) -- Overcrowding in the Mumbai local trains has made them a dangerous death trap for the 5 million passengers traveling daily.
The Bee, by VIKRAM DASGUPTA (Toronto, Canada) -- This beautifully shot and skillfully animated film shows the day in the life of a busy bee.
A complete list of schedules and finalists is available on the TUFF website.
